Queens Park Rangers have made enquiries about signing Huddersfield Town defender Michael Hefele, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

QPR boss Steve McClaren is looking to bolster his defensive options before the close of the transfer window having lost Nedum Onouha and Jack Robinson this summer when their contracts expired.

 

McClaren has so far only been able to bring in German defender Toni Leistner on a free transfer from Union Berlin and he is desperate to bring in more new faces before Thursday's transfer deadline.

German centre-back Hefele has emerged on QPR's radar and the Loftus Road outfit have made enquiries to Huddersfield about his availability.

Steve McClaren speaks with the media, as he is officially unveiled as the Queens Park Rangers new manager at Loftus Road on May 21, 2018 in London, England.

Hefele found himself down the pecking order at Huddersfield last season, making just six appearances all campaign and the permanent signing of last season's loan star Terence Kongolo has further increased competition for places in David Wagner's side.

The 27-year-old was a key member of the Huddersfield side that won promotion to the Premier League in the 2016/17 season and McClaren feels his Championship experience would be a valuable addition to to his squad at Loftus Road

Hefele is entering the final year of his contract at Huddersfield and QPR are waiting to see if they can try and land the defender on loan or on a permanent deal.
